    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    They do indeed make BNC to RCA adapters. I don't have a link to a specific one however. I use the BNC input for my Allo Digione+, which has a BNC output

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    Maggie’s do dip under 4 as well. The Vidars served me well for a few years as long as I wasn’t trying to make rock concert levels. The Tyr is definitely a step up in 4 Ohm power. They drive the 1.7i effortlessly to any level my ears and the speakers can handle.

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    They don’t spec it, just like they don’t spec the Vidar 1 that way. I can tell you I ran 2 Vidars into Magnepan 1.7i speakers for a few years with great results. It was only rarely when trying to shake the house down that they would go into protection. Since then I got a pair of Tyr, and moved...

    You can get a DAC 9 for a relative bargain https://audioresearch.com/product/dac-9/

    Don’t have the LIM, but I have an OG (Yggy GS) using with Tyrs on some 1.7s and I love the setup.

    Can say at this point, though Tyr sounds better at volume through the 1.7i than the Vidar, I’m also hearing more hum coming from the amp itself. Not through the speakers, but audible from the amps

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    Would be surprising given how much effort has been put forth and how much teasing of it there’s been. I’ve been waiting for it myself, playing stuff through a blu ray player. If it’s not gonna happen, I’ll probably get a Cambridge

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    Yes, I’d say gain of 2x Vidar and 2x Tyr are similar for me. At lower volume Tyrs are cooler, not surprising given the larger form factor. I look forward to having the house to myself to push them tomorrow

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    So far, great. Been playing them for a few hours of casual listening. They handle the 1.7i at 80 dB with no problem. That’s at 12 o’clock on the Freya S volume knob in 1x active mode, playing some rock/metal like Tool, Meshuggah, Opeth from Roon. I won’t be pushing it harder right now, since...

    The Tyrs have been installed in place of the Vidars. I’ll wait a while to push them, but initially, they are running much cooler than Vidars into the Maggies. The particle board rack lives on… just had to add a reinforced shelf for the extra weight.

    I wasn’t aware of an A2 upgrade to Gungnir? When did that happen?

    I’d say nope. But I guess for minis if you’re using them like computer speakers near field maybe. But I’d still probably go with the Vidar

    iFi audio iDSD Signature - The saga continues!

    So far with mine, I’ve just been using my phone directly for walking around, and I haven’t yet noticed the same issues with RF noise from the LTE/Wi-Fi that I’ve had in the past with my Oppo HA2, and mojo. For those I moved to a DAP for that reason, and used downloaded files and turned off...

    iFi audio iDSD Signature - The saga continues!

    A relatively cheap DAP like the HiBy R3, strapped on to the iFi, and connected via USB or SPDIF

    iFi audio iDSD Signature - The saga continues!

    Probably better off using a Wi-Fi enabled DAP or something so you can stream to that from your source. Will work better than Bluetooth over a wider area. What source are you using now?

    iFi audio iDSD Signature - The saga continues!

    Hi, I just got the signature and have been enjoying it with several different headphones. One of which is the SE846 IEM, which have a pretty low impedance, and not even across frequencies. Sensitivity-wise, I pretty much need it to be at Eco mode and Ultra-Sensitivity. I'm reading here that...

    Also, noting I’ve played these a lot trough the poly/mojo and didn’t have any issue, but of course there isn’t any 60 Hz there to find

    Audeze LCD-5 Review, Measurements, Interview

    That might make sense in my case, because the two amps where I had the issue (magni and thx) don’t have internal power supplies and don’t have a three prong plug. The codex, Jotunheim, and Mjolnir all do have a plug with a ground. Still weird that with the LCD2, and even the SE846 (where I can...

    Audeze LCD-5 Review, Measurements, Interview

    That’s what I figured initially too, but why can I only hear it in the LCD5, and not in the other headphones, and why only one ear cup, regardless of which cable is plugged into it?

    Also, am I right in concluding from these posts that S/N>1700 have the wider headband? Mine are a higher S/N and the headband feels perfect to me.

    Audeze LCD-5 Review, Measurements, Interview

    Weird, I just started noticing 60 Hz hum on my right ear cup too. I tried swapping L/R cables, and the hum stayed on the right. Tried the cable, from my LCD2, same deal. Plugged the same cables into my LCD2, no hum. Started noticing it when I tried them on a plain old magni heresy, which give...

    AEON, MrSpeakers' New Closed Back Planar Magnetic Headphone

    That’s interesting. I like them with the Mojo, but I primarily use them on Roon anyway with EQ. I do have an iFi signature on order that’s supposed to arrive tomorrow, so it will be cool to compare with mojo, which I’ve had for years
